More About EcoFiber

FSGeoTEX Geotextile sand additives refresh your existing sand or prolong the lifespan of your new sand. It gives your sand good cushioning while stabilizing the sand particles and helps retaining moisture in the arena footing.

The soft geotextile snippets of FSGeoTEX remain active as a cushioning agent for many years, unlike the stiff, thin green textiles or carpet fibers often used in other geotextile footings, which don’t add any cushioning and cannot hold and retain any moisture.

The FSGeoTEX 5* and GoldTex Premium blends are $0.33$0.48 per square foot, depending on whether you are mixing with three or four inches of qualified sand for your riding surface.

The selection of the right arena sand is imperative for best performance of the arena footing. For optimum choice, please send us a sand sample of your current sand. When building a new riding arena, we can assist you with the best sand selection, having a network of sand quarries throughout the US we are working with.   Please contact us for our recommended sand specification.

FSGeoTEX is the ideal choice as the sand additive for Dressage and Jumping arenas and high traffic arenas.

Your arena footing is only as good as it’s maintenance. You would need an arena groomer designed for geotextile arena footing with coil tines, adjustable height, leveling blade and lattice roller in the back. Our Platz Max arena drags which are the #1 in the World for over 25 years will properly maintain the sand/geotextile blend footing for many years to come.

HOW MUCH ARENA FOOTING DO YOU NEED?

FSGeoTEX polyester sand additives are not only comparable in upfront costs to other geotextiles on the market, but our blends are more cost-effective in the long-run, as less material is needed to improve your footing and it lasts significantly longer. Use our one of our arena footing calculators below (based on three and four inches of qualified sand) to determine how much sand additive you’ll need, or contact us to have one of our experts give you a quote.

UPGRADE YOUR FOOTING TO WORLD-CLASS

FSGeoTEX BLENDS THE ORIGINAL GERMAN GEOTEXTILE FIBER ARENA FOOTING

FSGeoTEX geotextile synthetic sand additive footing consists of polyester needle felt and fibers. Once the specific blend desired is determined, it is precisely blended during the manufacturing process. Because of the quality, only a minimal amount is needed to improve the arena surface in new and existing jumping and dressage arenas.

FSGeoTEX is the sand additive of choice for top professional equestrians because it:

  • Adds spring to the footing, reducing concussion
  • Gives stability and consistency to the surface
  • Retains moisture and reduces dust
  • Contains NO post consumer/ recycled ingredients, so you and your horse can breath in fresh air
    and not fibers from recycled carpet shreds
  • Lasts longer than alternatives like stiff, thin green textiles or carpet fibers

WHAT YOU RIDE ON MATTERS: THE FSGeoTEX DIFFERENCE

  • Hoofprints in our geotextile footing

Cushioning Every Step

The Perfect Balance of Elasticity and Stability. Our footing specialists carefully select the components of our geotextile fibers to balance out Cushioning and Stability to prevent over-compaction of the arena footing.

Stability You and Your Horse Can Rely On

Our synthetic sand additives add shear strength and spring to provide a solid landing with each footfall, reducing the risk of jarring and repetitive injuries.

Impact Absorption

The thickness and softness of FSGeoTEX fibers allow for a reduced hoof-to-ground interaction to minimize concussive force. Stress on the lower limbs and hocks is reduced to benefit horse performance and soundness.
